Question: What is the difference between a bee and a wasp?

Answer: Although bees and wasps both belong to the Hymenoptera order, they are different in many ways, chief among them being that a worker bee can sting only once (and dies while doing so) and a wasp can sting repeatedly. Bees make honey, and wasps don’t. Bees’ nests are made of wax, and wasps’ nests are made of paper and mud. Bees are vegetarians, while wasps like to eat spiders, flies, and caterpillars. Wasps are slimmer than bees.
